crap, i hope i didn't offend with the tone!  Having everydns do our DNS is 
great, I just thought it would make more sense to have tempest as primary, 
with everydns as secondary - also I can provide gradwell.net as a tertiary 
for some really paranoid redundancy.

can we make that change then?  tempest is running bind, so can be poked to 
double check records - i used david's dns db dump as a starting point.

i.e. host -t any <hostname>.evolt.org tempest.evolt.org

If i can get the IP address(es) of everydns machines that poke others for 
secondary zone transfers, I can add it/them to the bind config, and everydns 
can start serving secondary based on what's on tempest.

Let's roll, people :)
